What documentation can help form a criminal defense?

If you are ever arrested for a crime in Louisiana, you may wish to have an attorney handle your case. But to best serve you, an attorney will need information about both you and the crime you allegedly committed. Much of this information is contained in documentation. You may possess some of these documents yourself and other documents may be in the possession of the government or other people.

It is important for your attorney to have as much relevant information as possible in order to help you build your defense. Here are some of the kinds of documents that may prove valuable to your attorney:

  • The police file created by the authorities during the investigation of the suspected crime. This file could hold a wealth of critical information and your attorney has the right to view a complete copy.
  • The record of your arrest. The police will fill out a report that contains the place, date and time of the arrest along with other information about the alleged crime.
  • Your criminal record detailing any previous arrests and convictions.
  • Details of your alibi. This could be proof of being elsewhere during the commission of the crime in question.

This sort of documentation can form the basis of your criminal defense. It could be used to find inconsistencies in the prosecution's case or put into question accusations of your involvement in the crime. But to best serve your needs, the information must be put into a context that strengthens your case.

If you are charged with a crime, you may want to solicit the services of a Louisiana criminal defense attorney. By using evidence such as that contained in relevant documentation, the attorney can act on your behalf during all phases of your criminal case.
